If you are heading for 50 like I am and think you have seen every style in fashion come and go… you probably have. Fashion does move in cycles and over time what may have been considered old and dated… just a few years ago, suddenly becomes new again. Yes, with a little tweeking on the part of the designer, fashion trends do come back again and again.
But before you dive into your closet and dig out all those gems you loved and charished way back when, consider the following:
- Is it comfortable?
- Is it still me?
- Does it flatter my shape?
- Is the colour flattering?
- Does it coordinate with anything in my closet?
Fashion styles may move in cycles and come back into vogue again and again. However, as human beings, we evolve and change over time. Before putting on that outfit you wore faithfully in the 1970’s or 1980’s, think about who you are today. Even though the fashion style may be similar or the same as the good old days… it is likely you aren’t.
